November 6, 1917
 1st Division

The Canadians are now on drier land and Passchendaele Village is only 100 metres away. The depleted battalions of the 3rd and 4th Battalions are withdrawn and their replacements are fresh soldiers from the 1st and 2nd. The 1st Division, emerging from the Bellevue Spur, is to attack Passchendaele Ridge from the north. The 3rd Battalion from Toronto protects the northern flank of the assault by seizing a fortified farm that was pouring machine-gun fire into the Canadian attack. This allows everything to go as planned and the 1st Division's assault is a huge success.
